Trust Agents becomes part of the Dept network

German online marketing agency Trust Agents has joined the Dept network. With 75 data-driven marketing specialists, Dept strengthens its German market position and increases its international capabilities.

Berlin-based Trust Agents focuses on SEO and content. With PR, influencer marketing and smart content, they increase the online visibility of clients such as Expedia, Zalando and Tchibo. The agency, established in 2012, grew over 700% in the last four years, making them the seventh fastest growing company in Germany according to the Deloitte Technology Fast 50. Joining Dept is a logical next step and gives Trust Agents and its clients access to more high-quality digital services and new markets.

Paul Manuel, co-founder of Dept: "We want to give our clients a head start with our combination of data, creativity and technology. And not only within the borders of our tiny county, but all over the world. Trust Agents helps us in realizing our international ambitions. With them on board, Dept is the go-to online marketing agency for companies in The Benelux, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Together with e-commerce specialists BE EXCELLENT, we now have 150 German colleagues with the power and knowledge to create full-fledged online solutions."

Trust Agents will work at an operational level together with the Dept agencies, while maintaining its own identity. Dominik Wojcik, co-founder of Trust Agents, explains: "Dept gives us the ability to make an even greater impact on the online business of our clients. By connecting the touchpoints across all channels and, in doing so, steering traffic intelligently, we are able to make a difference. We are particularly looking forward to join forces with our Dutch sister company, Expand Online."
